Shooting victim flees to nearby convenience store

Suspect still at large

Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Office deputies are currently looking for Robert J. Kelly, who is suspected of shooting his older brother last Friday.


Deputies responded to a 911 call on Friday, Oct. 25, at approximately 7:18 p.m. at the Kinsale Handy Store for a report of a shooting, according to Sheriff C.O. Balderson.

Upon arrival, deputies learned that 40-year-old Kevin M. Kelly had been shot in the lower back while fleeing a residence on Gardy’s Mill Road.

Police learned that Kevin M. Kelly and his brother, Robert J. Kelly, both from Kinsale, had a physical altercation concerning money issues just before the shooting occurred.

It was reported that after the altercation broke up, Kevin Kelly and two friends got in a car to leave the scene, and allegedly, Robert shot at the vehicle. The three occupants fled to the convenience store to seek help and call 911.

Kevin, who was sitting in the backseat of the vehicle, was taken to MCV in Richmond, and has reportedly been released. The other two occupants, who were sitting in the front seats of the vehicle, escaped injury.

Robert J. Kelly is described as a 39-year-old black male, height 6’1”, approximately 200 lbs., brown eyes and black hair.

Robert is wanted on ten charges: one count of malicious wounding; three counts of attempted murder; one count of possession of a firearm after having been a convicted felon; one count of malicious shooting of an occupied vehicle; three counts of use of a firearm while attempting to commit murder; and use of a firearm while committing or attempting to commit aggravated malicious wounding.

Robert is a convicted felon on unrelated charges. The weapon has not been recovered, and police say he is considered armed and dangerous. Citizens with information on Robert J. Kelly’s whereabouts or any information about this crime are urged to call Detective Jay Mitchell at the Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Office 804-493-8066. Citizens can also go to the website www.westco.us to leave information directly, or use the TIP 411 service on that website.
